This Historically Important Vintage Zuni Pin/Brooch weighs a Very Sturdy 6.26 Grams.This'Best of the Best' Pin/Brooch Features an Incredible Mosaic-Inlaid'Pronghorn Antelope' That Was Entirely Handmade of Natural'Fox' Turquoise, Black Jet, and Orange Spondylus (Spiny Oyster)!!! This Exquisite'Pronghorn Antelope' Was Handmade and Firmly Set Within SIX Entirely Handmade and Applied'Saw Tooth' Bezels!!! The Color Within This Gorgeous Creature is a Wondrous Array of'Blue' and'Green' Turquoise,'Black' Jet, and'Orange' Spiny Oyster With Beautiful'Creamy-White' Striations - This Colorful Critter is Downright Amazing in Person!!! The Inlay-Work is Incredibly Precise and in Exquisite Condition With Only a Minor, Natural'Surface Fissure' in the'Nose', and is NOT to be Confused With Damage. This Came From a Colorado Estate, and Honestly Looks Like it Has Been Safely Stored For the Past 70+ Years The'Face' of This Important Zuni Pin/Brooch measures approximately 1 3/4" x 1" at Its Widest Point, and Features 13 Entirely Hand-Poured, Hand-Stamped and Applied'Silver Rain Drops' - Brilliantly Accentuating This Hypnotic OLD Pin/Brooch!!! These'Pronghorn Antelopes' Were Created in This Style by Prolific Zuni Artists, Julalita Lamy (1927 - 1992) and Bowman Paywa (1913 - 2002) in the 1940s - 1950s. Julalita Used a Very Distinctive'Silver Rain Drop' With Hand-Stamped'Parallel Lines', While Bowman Paywa Used a Very Distinctive'Silver Rain Drop' With a'Star-Shape' Hand-Stamped Design. This Particular Example Showcases the'Silver Rain Drops' Used by Bowman Paywa. I Have Owned About 5 of These in my Lifetime, and I've Seen Many More in Private Collections.
